Choose Womens Glasses Based on Face Shape

The first step to selecting a great pair of new frames is to determine the shape of your face. Picking complementary frames is an excellent way to look and feel beautiful in your new eyewear. Find the right style for you based on your face shape:

  • Oval:An oval-shaped face has balanced features. Look for wide frames with a strong bridge. Go for geometric shapes but avoid oversized choices.
  • Round:Choose rectangle or square shapes to contrast with your round features. Avoid round or rimless frames.
  • Diamond:Cat-eye options accentuate your cheekbones to complement a diamond shape. Do not choose narrow or boxy frames.
  • Oblong:Choose length over width for your eyeglasses to balance out your face shape. Glasses with a low bridge and decorative sides are a good choice.
  • Square:Look for a style that sits high on the bridge of your nose. Choose round or oval frames rather than angular types.
  • Heart: Select a pair in light colors. Minimal frames in oval or rectangular shapes work best.

Consider Your Eyebrows When Selecting Prescription Glasses

Your eyebrows are a prominent feature that gives your face character. You want to select frames that complement your brows. To find the right glasses:

  • Choose a pair that shows more than half of your eyebrows above the edges.
  • Find options that mimic the shape of your brows for a more natural look.
  • Opt for thin or semi-rimless frames if you have notable eyebrows.
  • Go with thick frames to accentuate thin brows.

Find the Right Color of Womens Prescription Glasses for You

When looking for the perfect pair of eyeglasses, assess whether you have warm, cool or neutral undertones. Then choose your frame color accordingly:

  • Cool skin tones:Blue-based hues of green, pink, purple, magenta and red are a good choice for cooler tones.
  • Warm tones:Honey, dark red, coral and olive shades are an attractive selection for these tones.
  • Neutral skin tones:If you fall in this category, the sky’s the limit on your frame options. Everything works with this skin tone.

Accentuate Your Glasses With Lip and Cheek Color

If your eyewear has bold frames, daring lip color can complement the look. Or you may choose to contrast your lips depending on your outfit and agenda for the day. Blush adds warmth to your face, giving you a more seamless look.
